Re: Does high-end brake pads really helps reducing stopping distance?
after just finishing my brake upgrade , I would definatley say that the pads have a large effect on the stopping distance, and rotors equally so
tyres play an important part, but with most new cars running abs, this avoids lock up anyway. so you just jam your foot on the brake. I may have just completed the upgrade but i have high quality tyres as well (Bridgestone Potenza G 3's in a 225/60/ R15 Format , they are not a cheap tyre for a 15 in sizing
Have you driven a Ford....lateley?
